Script: Clam Scan Email Notification

Script: Clam Scan Email Notification

This is a simple script that automates the process of scanning a specified directory and then sends an email of the results to a specified address.  To automate this process even further the use of cron can be used so that the script will operate on a given schedule. By default the script is set to scan the home directory, send emails to and from email@example.com and store logs in /var/log/. The required packages for this script are sendmail & clamav.

The script can be found on github.

Notes:

  • 1.1 – Fixed a problem with sendmail.
  • 1.0 – Initial release
